Very disappointed with our visit to Dinarjat.. The staff were surly and dis interested and had basically disappeared half way through our meal, to the point where I had to walk half way across the restaurant to find my wine bottle and bring it and the cooler back to my table. The food was mediocre at best, I've had far... More

It would be hard to find a more sumptuous place to enjoy an evening meal! Located in the medina, Dinarjat is in a centuries old building that was once a riad. It has an open courtyard with private dining areas surrounding the courtyard. The food is all fresh and made to order. The couscous and 7-vegetable dish was amazing, as... More

I recommend making a reservation so you can sit in the open air courtyard. We did not have a reservation, but the hostess was very accommodating and offered the 2 of us a large table next to the courtyard which was charming. Even the bathroom was aglow in red and rose petals

I first reviewed Dinarjat in December of 2014, after visiting it during a business trip. I was wildly enthusiastic, as it is housed in traditional riad and the atmosphere and food seemed wonderful. So, on a vacation trip with my family, I insisted we make a reservation for our last night in Morocco. When the meal was over, no one... More

We had dinner at Dinarjat on or first day in Rabbat,it was very nice. They have a small band playing live music, the house is beautiful (incl the unique restrooms) full with authentic old decoration items, the food was very good - I had the pigeon Pastia and a Tajin dish - delicious. But it was very expensive, almost twice... More

Our first dinner in Rabat was at Dinerjat. Wow! What a gorgeous place. It is in a former palace, a road with the traditional courtyard with fountain. The mosaic tile work is intricate, and the decor is traditional Moroccan. Our first course was a vegetable and beef soup and cheese-filled pastries. The main course was a chicken tagine and vegetables... More

While this restaurant is a bit pricey, it is well worth it! It is beautiful inside and the food is exquisite. They open at 7:30pm and they are located in the medina. I would park near the Kasbah Oudaya and then walk in with the restaurant on your GPS so you don't get lost. It is well worth it!

My wife and I ate here our first night in Morocco and we really enjoyed it. The food was good, the service was good and the ambience made it all special. We also enjoyed the music, particularly when our waitress joined in with the singing. Only complaint is that it was not well marked. We had been given good directions... More

Excellent atmosphere, great music and service, however the rice was boil-in-a-bag quality and the lamb shank with wild artichoke was so heavily salted that my mouth is numb. Of these sins, using substandard rice was the hardest to swallow. It's such a cheap ingredient that to cheapen the whole meal and degrade all possible flavor by providing a chewy plastic... More
